CD Reviews

Irma Thomas is an underappreciated treasure

"If you do not know Irma, then choose this live set to get acquainted. This is one of the best live performances I've ever heard on a recording; she smokes, sparkles and stuns the listener into giving it up and having a good time. Just listen. Only Aretha and Irma are the real Soul Queens."

"Irma's rendition of "It's Raining" is worth the price of the entire CD. I've always liked her friendly, smoky voice and the selection of songs is pretty good too, especially the aforementioned "It's Raining" and the too-funny "You Can Have My Husband (But Please Don't Take My Man).""
Fantastic fun

"Yes, Irma's timbre & voice have darkened somewhat since the '60's-- but I think the
husky quality is incorporated well. And while yes it's live so sound isn't completely pristine, it's till very good IMO. Most importantly they run through a whole host of
her most famous material and she just does it great! Very entertaining-- superb artist! If you want a more ballad side of the mature Irma, check out too her underated
"True Believer" album"
